Cate Blanchett Older, Thicker, Classier Than Sienna Miller?

At the London Film Critics' Circle Awards last week, actor Mark Strong said he thinks Cate Blanchett is set to take over the Maid Marian role in the upcoming Ridley Scott Robin Hood flick, Nottingham.
Sienna Miller was originally set to play the part, but she was reportedly booted from the film for being too young and too slim. Ouch. Strong, who will play Guy of Gisborne in the movie, says Cate "is a wonderful actress and it would make it a much classier film if she was in it." Yes, Blanchett's a wonderful actress, but what does he mean with the "much classier" bit? Classier than if Miller was in it?
The poor girl has already been deemed too young, too skinny, too well-groomed and now the guy has to imply she's not classy enough. Sure, Sienna has been involved with a married dude, but let's remember this is a film that stars Russell Crowe, who has not only been involved with married people but has also violently thrown telephones at people. Talk about not classy.
